It is original though. This deck isn't even the same colors! That other deck uses fewer wurms and uses Splinterfright /reanimator tactics. People have similar ideas sometimes. It happens. Do you think every single Golgari deck made recently is "unoriginal?" Everyone has their own ideas, and this is certainly not a copy of that deck. Ooh, so they both have wurms. Big deal. I checked out your profile, and saw this deck: deck:loleth-troll-meet-gravecrawler. That looks a lot like other Golgari Zombie decks. Hmm. My point is, don't go around slandering the decks of others on no reasonable basis.
Like I said, cards are different, but the premise is the same. Get Worldspine Wurm out in turn 5. No longer original, sadly.
You can also check the date on the deck. It was made within the first day Lotleth Troll was spoiled. That's why it has one of the highest rating. 4th highest in it's hub, I believe?
Well, it is a nice version of wurms. I did find myself a little mana shy, to the point where I used orders to grab an elf to cast my hand in a couple of quick and dirty play tests. I particularly like decendants path as I don't remember it being in the other Wurms I looked at. You might consider Gatecreeper Vine if you also feel that mana can be lacking and want an extra early defender.
@Cepican I apologize for the bickering. I admit, I fed the troll. I wasn't expecting such immature behavior on any site other than Youtube. lol As for actual suggestions, I would put in four more creatures to target with Unburial Rites instead of possibly card:Descendants' Path? You only really have 6 useful creatures to reanimate.
Ignoring the immaturity... Awesome deck and +1! But wouldn't you want one more land? I play tested a few times and noticed that without card:Descendants' Path out, the mana was a bit short to actually cast something. I mean this is your personal preference but just a suggestion. Maybe 22? Anyways go Wurms!
Thanks for the suggestions and the +1s everyone! =)
Woshi15: Yeah the immaturity was really annoying...Thanks for the +1 and your input! I have been thinking of adding in one more land for the last couple of days. I just can't decide which land I want to add. Any suggestions?
I don't have the answer, but I do have a bunch of answers. Evolving Wilds will let you pick what you need, at the cost of tempo. Forest will help you out with your must used mana. Selesnya Guildgate or Golgari Guildgate would give you another duel land, at the cost of tempo.
Who gives a shit if this deck isn't technically original? I doubt every single deck you make is one-of-a-kind. That's what Magic is. Someone discovers good cards and strategies, then others play it because it's better than everything else.
Yeah bro I know I can't use Unburial Rites on Worldspine Wurm . Thanks for looking out for me though! Unburial Rites ] are more or less in there for when I use card:Jarad's Orders and Grisly Salvage . It was a smaller idea I added because I thought it was fun =p. I've gone down from 4 to 2 though.
